Jessy Mendiola believes that love is sweeter the second time around. She said this after admitting that ex-boyfriend and comeback actor JM de Guzman is courting her again.
JM has yet to comment on the issue, but the two were often seen together since JM got out of rehab for drug use. JM is now a certified box office because of his hit movie, “That Thing Called Tadhana,” with Angelica Panganiban.
Reports indicate JM has been sending flowers to Jessy, who said that she believes in forgiving people. At this stage, they are at the point where their goals are more important but they are also working out their differences to become friends.
She denied, though, that they have already gotten back together. It is also better if JM will be the one to answer if he’s courting her or not.
They have already forgiven each other for what happened in the past. Right now, Jessy said they want to be friends first. In the past, Jessy denied her relationship with JM until they broke up. JM thereafter got hooked to drugs, but denied that Jessy caused his depression.
Jessy confirmed that someone is sending flowers to her, but she didn’t want to assume that it was from JM. Jessy joked that there are times the flowers also have pastillas with them.
The actress said JM is always going to be special for her. The two were seen together attending the premiere of “That Thing Called Tadhana” in Eastwood City. They weren’t able to go out again afte that, but she is happy JM was able to make a showbiz comeback.
They are both busy, so that’s why they cannot make another date. Jessy said JM is just getting the recognition he deserves because he’s a good actor and he’s a good person.
Jessy, however, denied any knowledge about JM’s almost courtship of Meg Imperial. JM earlier admitted that he almost pursued Meg after they were seen in an event together.
Meanwhile, Jessy will work again in another teleserye “Will Never Say Goodbye” with JC de Vera, Richard Gomez and Dawn Zulueta. Jessy said she’s very happy to work again with JC.
Jessy, however, added that she doesn’t have much scenes with JC. Her scenes are mostly with Richard and Dawn. She has worked with Richard before in “The Trial” while this is the first time she will be working with Dawn.
Jessy admitted feeling pressured to reach the same “kilig” with JC like Richard and Dawn.
